"I am a New Zealand citizen who purchased a business in the USA. I interviewed a number of lawyers, but Joe Sandbank’s attitude, personality and professionalism shone brighter than all the others. I needed someone who I could trust implicitly - who actually cared about their client and not just money."

"Joe is supportive and objective and knows what he is doing. Joe goes out of his way to fulfill requests as quickly as possible, and although I have met him only once and we have predominantly communicated by email - he feels like a long term friend. Joe is an exceptional lawyer - he will cover your back."
